Shas call on PM to sign treaty to protect the Status Quo

January 8, 2013 10:30

The three leaders of the Shas party, Arye Deri, Eli Yishai and Ariel Attias, called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to sign a treaty to safeguard the Jewish nature of the State of Israel in a letter sent to the Prime Minister's Office on Tuesday.

The party asked the prime minister to sign the treaty in order to show his commitment to the topic both to them and to the voters.

Shas said the merger between Likud and Yisrael Beytenu, who hold "opposite values," to those of Likud on the topic of the Jewish nature of Israel, was among the reasons for the treaty.
